A "must stop"

I never get tired of the view from the Lookout. The beautiful green, blue of Hanalei Bay, the waterfalls, what else can I say?

I've been to Kauai numerous times and always have stayed in the Princeville area. Be sure to stop here--it's just on the side of the road in front of Foodland.

Classic View on so many postcards and family snapshots. While not a unique angle and well photographed why pass it up? Its a good place to stop and have a new friend takeyour picture and return the favor. Met many travelers and locals at this stop.

I'm so glad I got to see this! Pictures really can't show the beauty of this valley. The colors of green vegetation, the colors of the sky and putting it all together was one landscape I will always remember. A must see on your way to Hanalei!

Easy place to stop at on your travels to the north side for some great photo opportunities...very beautiful. Plenty of parking when we stopped as well.

This scenic lookout is awesome. I wasn't sure what I was looking at but it looked like rice patties. you are looking at thousands of acres of farm land

idyllic valley view, best seen early in the morning or just before sunset, but amazing anytime. easiest access when leaving Hanalei, but the road isn't that busy anyway.

Take the time and just stop for a little overview. It is worth it. The views are nice and you can just take it all in.

What can you say about a lookout like this except - Breathtaking, stellar vista!!! Easy in and out of the smallish parking area, pictures will never do it justice!
